FACEIT to host next Major in London

MIRAA
February 22nd, 2018 14:00

ECS organisers FACEIT will host the next $1 million Counter-Strike Major in London, the UK-based company has confirmed.

The second Major of 2018 will culminate with a live event from September 20-23 at the 10,000-seater SSE Arena, Wembley, which staged the offline finals of the first and the third ECS seasons.

This will be the first Major hosted by FACEIT, which becomes the sixth company to run an event of this magnitude together with Valve, joining a list that includes DreamHack, ESL, MLG, ELEAGUE and PGL. It will also be the first Major to be held in the UK, following stops in Sweden, Poland, Germany, Romania and the United States.

SSE Arena will stage the next Major

In addition to hosting the Major, FACEIT will run the online qualifiers for all regions as well as the Minors as it looks to "provide consistency and cohesion to the Major".

"The community has been at the heart of everything we do at FACEIT, and we are so grateful for the support of the players on our platform and those who’ve attended and watched ECS," said Michele Attisani, Chief Business Officer and Co-Founder of FACEIT.

"We’re excited to create an amazing celebration of CS:GO to honour that commitment. We look forward to seeing everyone there in September."

The FACEIT Major will continue to feature 24 teams, following the expansion that was introduced by Valve ahead of the ELEAGUE Major. Sixteen of those teams have been determined, while the last eight sides will come from the Minors that will be hosted across the globe.

Below you can find the 16 teams already confirmed for the FACEIT Major as a result of their run at ELEAGUE Major Boston:

New Legends Stage
United States Cloud9 Europe FaZe
Ukraine Natus Vincere Brazil SK
Europe mousesports Russia Quantum Bellator Fire
France G2 Sweden fnatic
New Challengers Stage
Kazakhstan Gambit Russia Vega Squadron
Turkey Space Soldiers Germany BIG
Denmark Astralis North America Liquid
Denmark North Poland Virtus.pro

Over the coming weeks, FACEIT will reveal more information about the Major and the local activities that it will support all over the world for fans to gather and enjoy the matches. Tickets for the event will go on sale on April 2.

That's because our companies are some of the best. Like SK and Mouz 2 top 5 teams are owned by Germans. And we had big for a little bit.

Valve probably is afraid that CIS major organization would have bikini girls and thooorin.
2018-02-22 16:53
And you dont think he wont be at one in his home country?
2018-02-22 16:58
I think volvo has banned thooorin from their own events already. At least DH, ESL and ELEAGUE does not seem to want him anymore conidering the salty tweets thooorin spews out towards those orgs. I think he has not been in Faceit ECS either at least on two previous iterations. Only Russian orgs seem to use him anymore as analyst, because Russians probably think just like thooorin.

All csgo events hosted in sweden so far were at least beautiful. The crowd is the best by far and the country and people are nice and welcoming. You can't even debate that sweden is the best for hosting cs stuff. Don't complain about uk just because it has a lack of tier 1 teams. The country is nice and the major will be a great one
2018-02-22 22:16

September 20-23 wtf
2018-02-22 14:01
That's the date for only the playoffs.
2018-02-22 14:03
well group stage/major will be in september still
2018-02-22 14:21
Interesting news though, according to faceit official on reddit, the playoffs will last 4 days with no planned overlaps for any teams. That means we'll likely be seeing a BO5 final, as they can fit quarters into 2 days, semis into one day and then a BO5 final into one.
2018-02-22 14:25
or bo3 final on Sunday, like every final ever
2018-02-22 14:33
That would be a disappointment. FACEIT prides itself on interacting with the community, if they can't even see the long lasting desire for a truly competitive BO5 final, they will have failed as a company.
2018-02-22 14:34
i think it comes down to what valve says ultimately. maybe the hosts have some kind of chat with valve i dunno. but there has always been time for a bo5 final because the final is always on a separate day

cologne is too successful for its own good. it's already a huge event with a packed stadium, if valve made it a major nothing would change. but if they give it to faceit, they'll have TWO big events. 2 > 1

when are major hype videos going to stop including the jumping noscope from Cold? Cmon, there has to be something more recent that was pretty cool as well
2018-02-22 14:02
it's one of the best ddk/bardoph clips, faceit want to use their ppl.
2018-02-22 14:20
That's a good point, i didn't think of that one. I'm just at a point where I've seen this clip so many times that i'm beginning to almost find it boring :)
2018-02-22 14:22
:D we need a new jumping noscope collat :D
2018-02-22 14:36
but it wasn't ddk nor bardolph, what are you talking about?
2018-02-22 18:03
obviously i mean the casters, not the players :P watch it again and listen, the one shouting "OHOHOHOHOOOOO" is ddk ;)

Valve, November 2017 - "Alright so we're gonna announce the second major of 2018 probably by the end of the month" Valve, February 2018 - "Oh fuck thats right! We actually have to do something with CSGO or we'll stop getting money."
2018-02-22 14:03
Valve said they will "announce" it internally, faceit already knew in november/december that they got it.

I think out of all countries, the most hatred from UK goes to France but thats just a historical thing Maybe hate is too strong of a word. Edit: Also most people like Australia+Aussies, the rivalry is strictly sport based.
2018-02-22 16:03

This new system is completely stupid. Basically if you were "legends" (aka top 8 of previous Major with 16 teams) you're basically ensured you will play the next 2 Majors (with 24 teams) because in the first next one you will be Legends and at least top 16 and you are ranked 9-16th at that Major (with 24 teams, basically if you don't get to the playoffs) you will be qualified to the New Challengers Stage on the following Major. Basically BUG will enjoy in September 2018 their top 8 qualification (because of 3 BO1 in Inferno OMEGALUL) of the July 2017's Major ... The whole scene told Valve that in 6 months (from a Major to another one) teams' form change a lot and it was basically retarded to have 8 Legends, but now if you get to top 8 to a Major you're sure to get top 16 to the following one thus qualify to the Major+2 with 24 teams.

Well it's like the major qualifier really, the challengers stage I mean, so basically the system runs like before. Only difference is that they are leeching sticker money for the next major, sadly.

Yeah that thing that you're not fully at "the real Major" when you're at the Challengers Stage (24 teams but still not sure to reach the last 16) but still getting stickers make irrelevant teams make massive undeserved stickers money like VP because they got to top 8 one year before (2 Majors before) shows that Valve is only interested in making $$$$ with washed up teams with big fanbase (VP/NiP) or teams that wouldn't "ever" qualify to a real Major (TyLoo/Flash, some CIS teams), so they give them stickers. Valve is not as interested in the quality of the competition as long as stickers money flow for teams that wouldn't have reached a 16 teams Major ever.

Ehh, do you even understand how the system works? The new challengers stage is basically the old major qualifier, so in fact they aren't qualified for the next major per say. They are qualified for the first stage, where if they go out, which let's be honest, they probably will, they will next time have to go through minor quals, the minor, etc etc.
2018-02-22 15:56
#411

France StickyRice 
I replied to "myself" on #388 as someone else noticed the same problem (#250). Basically VP and BUG got top 8 in summer 2017 Major, they are qualified to January 2018 Major. To this point everything is fine. But on January 2018 they lost 0-3 and 1-3 (basically ranked 9th-16th) and are still qualified to summer 2018 (9 months later LUL, when everyone told Valve that 6 months between Majors made the "legends" concept totally irrelevant as some "legends" totally lost their form) because of a top 8 finish in summer 2017 Major (2 Majors before) because they extended the system to 24 teams instead of 16. Basically if you get to top 8 once at a Major you are sure to be top 16 in the next one (as it was the case in the past with 16 teams legends) and qualified to the "Major+2" one year later on the New Challengers Stage among the 24 teams. Completely stupid : BUG basically won 3 BO1 on Inferno and qualified to 2 Majors (top 16 ensured in the following one and top 24 ensured for 2018 Summer Major) because of these 3 BO1. This is beyond absolutely retarded. 1 year in esports is an eternity ...

I hate to say it, but beyond all the fancy words they use, it really is the same system as before. Challengers Stage = Old major qualifier. Legends Stage = Old major group stage. Champion Stage = Old major playoffs. The ONLY thing - but this is something I'm really fucking pissed about too - is the fact that they are leeching sticker money for a major they do not deserve getting money from until properly qualified. I guess they would have to do this, because holding a big mash up qualification that may cause 16 entirely new teams to enter the challengers stage - say if around 8 of them are nonamers - we will have problems with viewers for real. It's all about the viewership tbh. Otherwise - I do agree with you. I'm just saying the only change really made here is that they are secured sticker money along with the 8 teams completing the minors, which is also stupid, because those 8 teams BARELY need to prove themselves.
2018-02-22 16:08
#441

France StickyRice 
Yeah i just realized that it was the same system but 8 more teams get stickers (and some teams only wanted to qualify for the stickers). So basically before if you were top 8 at a Major you would be qualified for the next one, if you finished 9th-16th you would qualify for the next Major Qualifier but in that case you wouldn't make stickers money. Now that the Major Qualifier is "the new challengers stage" you can be top 24 and still make stickers money allowing teams like BUG or VP to slump from top 8 in the first Major, to top 16 in the second one to top 24 (challengers stage) to the third one making these teams sure to cash stickers money for the next 2 Majors after a top 8 finish instead of being sure of making money to only the next one (when 16 teams only reached the Major, because if you went from top 8 to top 16 the next step lower would be the Major Qualifier, without stickers money). Thank you for reminding me that it was the "same" system but the transition to 24 teams totally changed the fact that now a top 8 finish allows you to bank money for at least the next 2 Majors (worst case you could go is top 16 to the next Major and top 24 to the following one).

NP sir :)) But yeah it sucks, it really does. Make top 8 in one major and you can live it out for ez money with zero effort 2 times in a row straight after. That's fucking ridiculous. It's fine they have done what they have done, but at least make the earnings from sticker money lower then for the teams in the Challengers Stage.

only if VP wins, and that wont happen. More likely empty arena when VP is out of groups, IF they even qualify.

Great. Don't forget to pour everything into DOTA 2 Valve. Go fuck yourself Gaben. It's not like Valve has the money to sponsor more tournaments a year. Also, rememer the Dota 2 players who matchfixed and basically got a slap on the wrist? We do.

Why are people want Epicenter as organizer? Their parent company is the one i have my doubts about. Plus letting them organize it in a CIS country / Russia, what could possibly go wrong (Sochi 2014).
